Wilson Group has announced an extension of its partnership with Australian motor racing team Garry Rogers Motorsport (GRM).
The operational services company will continue for the fourth consecutive year as the team’s naming rights sponsor for the 2018 Virgin Australia Supercars Championship.
Wilson Group first partnered with the touring car outfit in 2015. The Australian company has a long history of involvement with teams competing in the Supercars Championship, having sponsored the Paul Cruickshank Racing team in 2009, as well as having partnerships with Stone Brothers Racing, Tony D’Alberto Racing, Brad Jones Racing and Dick Johnson Racing.
“I have been fortunate that throughout my 54 years in motorsport that I have had companies and people who have trusted me to give them value for their investment,” said Garry Rogers from GRM.
“The Wilson brand and logo have become synonymous with Supercars and we are very proud to represent the brand. Loyalty is often a characteristic that is lost in modern sport and particularly the competitive nature of sponsorships.
“I cannot express how proud and thankful I am that through some very difficult times and uncertainty that the Wilson Group has backed me and stuck with GRM. When people and companies stick with you, it gives you confidence and to have a multinational company such as Wilson support you as a naming rights partner for four consecutive years does give you confidence.”
“Wilson Group greatly value our relationship with Garry Rogers and the entire team at GRM,” added John McMellan, chief executive of Wilson Australasia Group. “On and off the track, the partnership has gone from strength to strength, our organisations share similar values, work ethic and culture, we’re already looking forward to the 2018 season.”
